Mike Smith joins Delta Devils

Centenary men's basketball coach Rob Flaska is searching for another assistant coach today after Mike Smith resigned to take an assistant's job at Mississippi Valley.

That may not seem like big news, but it is a big loss for our communnity. Smith, the only holdover from Kevin Johnson's staff, is a class guy who worked hard, did things the right way and endeared himself to the Centenary faithful. He'll get a big jump in pay with the Delta Devils and he could be in line to take over as head coach in a year or so if current coach James Green moves on as expected.

We'll miss seeing Smith's looming frame roaming the Gold Dome sidelines. We just hope that he takes that award winning smile with him to Itta Bena, Miss.
